|Debt Ceiling and Wealth Disparity|
Weekly roundtable tackles the high drama on the hill. Itâs Boehner/Reid/Wall Street versus the rest of us. Boehner seems stuck, Reid is negotiating, Obama is politicking and Wall Street is making money but worried. Meanwhile rebellion all round; not Greek street style, but pressure from the Tea Party while Moveon.org hits the streets: the very latest on the high stakes theatre on Capitol Hill.

|Transformation of a Word Model to a Geometric Space Description - Bernhard Bierschenk|
On the basis of the Agent-action-Objective (AaO) paradigm, it will be shown how the transformation of a word model to a geometric space description can be made the foundation for an approach to informational invariants. In particular, the word model of a Causal Loop Diagram (CLD) has been used for simplifying the involved procedures. Since the explanation of a causal loop requires a verbal description of what is in the links, this kind of discourse is necessarily dependent on its producerâs int...
